BA review #800!
12oz Bottle - big thanks to iguenard for this one
Appearance – Clear copper colour with an average size fizzy and frothy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation visible and there is a good amount of lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, grapefruit/oranges, peaches, pineapples
Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation and it feels slightly thick on the tongue. I can taste malts, caramel, and lots of hops. It also has lots of fruit flavours going on, pineapple, tangerines, grapefruit and some peaches. I can also pick up on the booze a little bit, and it provides a nice warming feeling as it goes down. It finishes with a sweet tropical fruit aftertaste with a long lingering hop bitterness.
Overall – I know my bottle isn't the freshest, but I still thought this was an incredible beer. Either it really held up well, or the fresh stuff is going to blow my mind. Definitely one of the best beers I've had the pleasure of drinking.

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a dark honeyburst color with a medium sized white head that has great retention and lots of lacing.
Smell is of floral hops, honey, hints of citrus, and a sweet toffee .
Taste is sweet up front with honey and a bite of grapefruit, combined it is nice. As if moves through the palate, the alcohol shows up and reminds you this is 10% and finishes with punchy hops. Mouthfeel is a bit on the oily side, smooth, fairly heavy and even has some creaminess to it.
Overall, an awesome Imperial IPA that you have to make sure and get each Winter before it's sold out.
